Which Social Media Sites Should You Be Marketing On?

What social media sites should you be marketing on BL

Social media is great for marketing your business or building your network. But with so many options, it’s hard to know which site you should be utilizing for your marketing efforts. Different social sites speak to different audiences, in different ways, and what works for one social media site may not work for another.  

So, which social media sites should YOU be marketing on? We break them down for you below.


Facebook was originally a friendship based networking site. When Facebook was launched over 10 years ago, it was service to connect college students. Now it’s open to anyone in the world and has over 1 billion users. While Facebook is still friendship based, it is increasingly business friendly. One big reason to be on Facebook is the sheer number of users. Most people you know or want to connect with are already on Facebook. While promoting your business on Facebook can sometimes be tricky (people can easily hide what they don’t want to see) the sheer number of people on the network make it a smart choice to do some marketing.


LinkedIn was built for business, advancing in your career, and making business connections. Because of these reasons, it makes sense for you to market and build your network on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a fast growing social media network, but still has far fewer users than Facebook. Also users do not log in to LinkedIn or access their page as frequently as they visit Facebook. Use LinkedIn to build a strong network, but know your marketing may not be seen by as many people as content on Facebook will be.


Twitter has nearly 300 million monthly users and the best part is that you don’t have to be friends with them or have an established connection for them to see your marketing content. Thanks to the 140 character limit and a fast moving feed, Twitter takes minimal time investment. Twitter is a great place to market your business and test strategies. One tip: Do research into the right hashtags to make sure your content is seen by the most people.


If your business is photo-friendly, Instagram is a great choice. This increasingly popular network relies on hashtags just like Twitter in order for users to find content. Photo-friendly businesses like hair salons, doggie daycare, or travel services thrive on Instagram. If your company isn’t photo-friendly try to get creative in your use of Instagram. Motivational quotes over a fun background are often popular on Instagram and can relate to many business areas. Think of ways they can apply to you.


You may have heard that Google+ is dead, and that may be partially true. But thanks to the popularity and dominance of the Google search engine, it’s still important for your business to be on Google+. To market on Google+, make sure your page has all the important business information like address, hours, and even some photos. Direct your customers to leave reviews on Google+ as well. This way, when someone searches for your business or a business service like yours, your results will be favored by Google and appear higher up on the search results.

4 Best Domain Tips for 2015

best domain tips for 2015


Whether you are purchasing a domain to build an online presence for your business, build up your domain portfolio, or as an affiliate marketer for domain cost club, there are various guidelines that will make your process easier and more successful. Read on to learn about the best domain tips for 2015.

1. Don’t be afraid of unique TLDs

Since 2008, ICANN has been rolling out new, interesting and valuable gTLDs for public use. At first, these TLDs can seem a little scary. What do you do without a .com? By now you’ve noticed that many companies are taking advantage of these gTLDs for branding opportunities, low prices, and their uniqueness. The right gTLD can help brand your business, and the right group of gTLDs can help to build your portfolio. As more gTLDs roll out and more companies adopt them, they will begin to become the norm. Take advantage of the newness of domains to build your portfolio before these domains and pricing get hot.

2. Look for Great Pricing

Not only are many of these gTLDs less costly than .coms, but they often come with special pricing when they are first unveiled. Look for what is called “sunrise pricing” for domains when they first become available. This refers to a cheaper pricing period for people getting in on the “ground floor” of a domain. DCC will often offer specials as new TLDs become available. New TLDs become available every so often, so if you missed sunrise pricing on one domain, chances are another will be available soon.

3. Expand Your Network

The domain industry isn’t as closed off as it used to be. The industry used to be just for experts and big investors. Now anyone can have their own personalized domain or start creating their own domain portfolio as a way of investing. How does this help you expand your network? More people than ever are purchasing their own domains. Connect with others like you or share with potential customers how easy and important it is to have your own domain. Grow your network with everyday people, not just “domainers.”

4. Know What Your Domain is Worth

If you’re building a domain portfolio, its very important to know what your domain or domains are worth. You most likely know what you paid for your domain, but that doesn’t mean you know what it’s worth. What would you sell your domain for? What kind of profit are you looking for? For help in finding out what your domain is worth, think of it a little bit like real estate–in fact, it is internet real estate. Search online for comparable sales of domains like yours. Do these seem reasonable? Over priced? Find a balance between the going rate of domains like yours and what you hope to make and set that as your price. It’s ok to be flexible, but not having a price in the first place shows prospective buyers that you’re either not interested in your domain, or can easily be taken advantage of with you losing out on a sale. Your domain is a form of investment, so always know its worth.
